After visiting the market a few times, Hera felt she was far more acquainted with the Meyers, Kristoph in particular. From business trips to Halloween parties, there always seemed to be a reason to go and visit, which was of course helpful when deciding when to go. It felt like a breath of fresh air from her late stress of life with Egan and the twins and the new fiancee. It was at least nice to finally have a decent friend that wasn't so involved with the dark of the underworld, and of course, wasn't just some arranged plot for the Ivers.
Knowing Kris was coming today made her feel excited to say the least. She was finally going to be able to show him this business she was building in the little village of Alderley Edge. Eventually, she would hope to expand and work more with the reserves, but for now, it was her little pride and joy.
Before he was due, Hera had bade sure the shop and entrance way were primed and cleaned perfectly. She wanted to make a good impression. Even now, ten minutes before he was due, she had her wand out and was using charms to turn stock with the labels out, adjusting how they stood on the shelves and how decorations sat. She smiled a little, glancing around, flicking her wand to straighten out a rug and realign the tassels on the corner. Yes, it was a rug she had bought from the market that she was proudly displaying.
Perhaps it was a touch too much...
She stood there, at the entrance, finger on her lips as she considered the decoration on the floor. Perhaps the pattern was wrong. Maybe it was too pandering. She personally liked it, but was it coming off as desperate to make an impression?
